I'd say that the "best selection tool" mostly depends on
what you want to select.
If you need to select rectangles, the bezier tool is not the
best tool (the rectangular select tool is much better for that)
If you need to select based on the color the bezier tool is
not the best tool (the color select tool is much better for
And so on.
If you need to select bezier-formed areas, the bezier tool
might be the best tool.
